KUCHING: Sarawak General Chamber of Commerce (SGCC) committee members paid a courtesy call on Consul General of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in Kuching, Liu Quan here yesterday.

Its chairman Dato Lai Kah Chun led the delegation to seek advice and assistance from Liu to connect them to the commerce associations and overseas relations offices in China.

A group of about 20 people would leave on a study trip to China next month to learn about commerce and technology development and seek to promote commercial activities of Sarawak in China.

Lai hoped SGCC could work closely with the Chinese consulate to enhance the friendship between Malaysia and China and to promote economic development and cultural exchanges.

According to Lai, SGCC

planned to promote the local halal food in China for Sarawakian Muslims to enjoy the taste of home food.

SGCC had registered 233 members since its formation in March and expect membership to increase.

He added SGCC would set up name card corners in airports and commercial centres for members to drop their name cards for publicity purposes.

SGCC is an organisation to support the development of business in response to business needs and the need of regulations on business management.

SGCC, with accounting and law experts, also assist members on matters related to Goods and Services Tax (GST).

Members would also be provided with legal advice, financial management consulting, balancing business interests, business exchange platform, advocacy services and award eligibility.

The chamber would be organising activities such as entrepreneur awards, charity events, seminars and projects to work with the government.
